Hormone disrupters a priority for research, Commission says

The EU’s next R&D programme should channel resources into better understanding the effects of chemicals that disrupt hormone systems in people and animals, according to the European Commission’s new strategy for the problem.

Accelerating research that could inform future decision-making on these endocrine-disrupting chemicals was one of three Commission priorities for tackling them, announced on 7 November.
